Consulting Without Borders LIVE - Perspectives, Episode 14: A Journey Within: From International Projects to Parent Empowerment

Tune in to the 14th episode of the Gabriel Al-Salem Foundation's series "Consulting Without Borders LIVE - Perspectives," featuring international consultants and experts dedicated to addressing global challenges, promoting professional excellence, and fostering a sustainable future.

On June 1 we were delighted to welcome Valeria Della Rosa (Italy), Founder and CEO of Oli help. Valeria has built an impressive career in both the private and public sector leveraging her expertise in delivering creative solutions and building high performing teams. Her passion for technology led her to Thoughtworks, where she gained extensive hands-on experience in product management and digital transformation. During her time at the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) in London, she held key leadership positions, working with consultants and businesses in the EBRD’s countries of operation, with a focus on driving social and economic change. However, it was her personal experience of behavioral change necessary to support her son that inspired her to create Oli help.

Valeria was a valued colleague of Gabriel Al-Salem at EBRD, and she played an instrumental role in establishing the Gabriel Al-Salem International Award for Excellence in Consulting after Gabriel’s passing. She was also an avid supporter and participant of the “Consulting Without Borders” conferences in Kazakhstan, the Kyrgyz Republic, Ukraine and Turkey.

During the live broadcast, Valeria shared her inspiring story of transformation from being a corporate executive to building her own business, which has a mission to empower parents of children with diverse minds. Valeria offered valuable insights on:

  • Unleashing personal potential: Harnessing your own struggles to inspire and empower others.
  • Finding purpose through lived experiences: supporting parents in navigating challenges related to their child’s diverse behavioral traits.
  • Building a purpose-driven business: Practical strategies and overcoming obstacles along the way.
